101 Films presents Robert Longo's cyberpunk classic Johnny Mnemonic (1995), released on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK. Adapted for the screen by visionary writer William Gibson from his own short story and starring Keanu Reeves in a role that paved the way for his lead role in the Matrix series, Johnny Mnemonic is a futuristic thrill-ride that will blow your mind.
It’s the year 2021 and Johnny (Keanu Reeves) is a data courier with a secret: he is carrying a dangerous stash of information in his mind and must race against time, money, and gangsters to deliver the package and save himself. Accompanied by physically enhanced bodyguard Jane (Dina Meyer), Johnny sets out to acquire the passwords he needs to save himself. Worse yet, he is hunted by gangster Shinji (Denis Akiyama) and businessman Takahashi (Takeshi), both of whom seek the data Johnny possesses.
